23X 700TVL Smart Infrared PTZ Security Camera
  Review by Trump. Chris (Idaho USA) on Sep 15, 2014
I had no problems installing this camera, setting it up, or currently using it. It seems like a solid, robust camera of high quality. The video picture is sharp, color is very close to natural and even the black and white mode records well. I guess the reasons why we settled on this camera is because the special LED feature. We have had to rely on our security camera system in the past and the local police said the video quality of our Security Camera King system was great. What's more, we didn't want to take our chances with a "No IR LED" camera, hoping that there would be enough light for the ultimately clear video. In addition, since we do hop around areas with the camera from close to far, the Smart Infrared system of using different intensity IR LEDs to prevent under lighting or washout works well. Not only would I recommend this PTZ camera but I will rate it at 5 stars as well.

  Review by Brice Crook, Crook's Security LLC on May 23, 2014
I've been working with Security Camera King and Tech Pro Security products now for about 5 years. I have never purchased any gear from them that wasn't high quality and furthermore, I've never received better customer and technical support from a company. However, that still doesn't speak specifically for this camera. Recently I purchased and installed this camera for a customer and I must say, you do get what you pay for. They paid a lot for this PTZ camera and they certainly have gotten a lot out of it. First of all it does boast a 23x zoom lens so it is like using a pair of binoculars as far as magnification is concerned. The camera captures color and black and white video in crisp, clear, 700TVL resolution and believe me when you combine that resolution with a 23x zoom there isn't a whole lot you could miss. Another thing that's nice about this PTZ is the 3D positioning feature. In this day and age as much as we take computers and smartphones and similar technology for granted, the ability to be able to precisely control the PTZ movements with erratic actions or over shooting using the DVRs USB mouse is not only convenient but impressive. Then of course their is the "Smart: infrared feature that occurs in its name. This works pretty well helping to prevent washout from over exposure on close up objects while still radiating a beam strong enough to carry 250 feet away in total darkness. It is a nice PTZ with a lot of features and well worth the listed price.

  Review by Bill Wickett on Mar 21, 2014
I talked to Security Camera King, did some more looking and shopping and decided to go with this camera. I'm glad I did, I like it. I wanted a camera with on board infrared LEDS but one that was strong enough to give me more than just a 50 to 100 foot range for example. During daylight hours the area we use this in is fairly well lit, but at night it is extremely dark and I didn't want to risk missing anything. Well I can honestly say it works and works well. We get at least a 200 foot plus range (we don't quite have 250 feet of area to cover) at night and it works well. There's nothing like a PTZ with a powerful zoom that can still take advantage of the LED illumination. The picture is very sharp whether it is in color during daylight periods or in infrared "black and white" at night. The "Smart" LEDs, use the higher intensity set for long range and the lower intensity set for closer objects so the video doesn't show up too dark or to washed out. That and the 3D intelligent positioning feature are added bonuses. I'd recommend it.

  Review by John Derek (Texas USA) on Feb 05, 2014
When PTZs (or any camera with an remotely controlled or automatic zoom lens) gets up around the 23x power like this one from Security Camera King, there can often be a situation where the zoom power out weighs the camera's infrared capability. On the other hand, often, non-infrared zoom cameras, due to the nature of the curvature of their lenses, soak up more light than non-zoom fixed lens counterparts, and therefore long range night time shots are often not very distinct or contain a significant amount of digital noise because the gain control is amped up, even with digital noise control at its highest. This PTZ camera is a good attempt at trying to resolve this issue by providing its own on-board infrared LED illuminators that are strong enough to reach 250 feet. Of course if your situation calls for a longer range than 250 feet, you can always try adding additional infrared illuminators at that point. However, getting back to the camera, when the IR range is that far, the LEDs are almost always going to be too strong for objects that are up close to the lens, making the object appear like a theater stage figure with an excessive amount of spot lights on him or her, and in security video camera cases, resulting in washed out white looking black and white video with poor scene detection. This camera does a pretty good job of compensating for this problem by automatically using two different sets of IR LEDs, one for far range shots and one for those objects up close. The camera comes with a "safety" hook that you must install before mounting to keep the camera from falling during servicing, a little different from typical standard pre-installed wire safety cables. In summary, the camera produces a very good high quality color/black and white video and has a lot of OSD features, settings, and functions. It's a good purchase and I would recommend its use to anyone.

I've been dealing with Security Camera King going on 5 years now. All of their products are high quality and easy to install.
Their DVR's are 1st rate, with easy to follow instructions. AND should you have any difficulties, their tech support is second to none,
If your a DIY'er and want to try it yourself first before contacting tech support, they have a large selection of online tech videos to assist. Some of those videos are for iPhone and Android remote viewing, DVR/NVR set-ups and programming, not to mention camera installation's.

Again you can't go wrong with Security Camera King & TechPro Products. They support what they sell !!

  Review by Miller, Ted (Florida USA) on Jan 03, 2014
As a retired marine and policemen I can appreciate the necessity for security for my retail business and video security even more for protection and documentation purposes. I've learned over the years not to let security issues rely on guess work so that is why I opted for this Security Camera King "smart infrared" camera with IR LEDs instead of using a true day night camera and risking whether I would have enough light on a given night for a clear picture. The 23X zoom gives this PTZ quite a range and the 250 foot rated IR LEDs back that up at night time, however the "smart" technology also allows for recording objects close up as well without obliterating the area with overly strong LED illumination. So for IR use, you get the best of both worlds, close in and far out. I also have a Security Camera King DVR so this camera can take advantage of the "3D" mouse positioning system where you can manually control the PTZ movements including repeated zooming with your USB mouse attached to the DVR. The PTZ movements are quick and very responsive with out over movement or ranging out. The OSD provides for many features that can improve your video recording experience. I like this PTZ camera and would recommend it to others as well.

  Review by Leo McCormack on Sep 28, 2013
I honestly have to say that I was very uneasy about purchasing an expensive piece of electronic equipment like this on line without ever actually seeing the device close up. However, I must also give Security Camera King credit, because in addition to providing an online catalog, their videos, availability to the specifications and owners manuals, and reviews were a big, big factor in making my decision to purchase this camera. And now that I have, I must admit I am glad that I did.

A PTZ with infrared illuminators can be a blessing or a disaster depending on what you want to use it for. Especially when the PTZ lens has a power factor of 23X you want to make sure you have enough infrared illumination power to cover the distances the camera could zoom or night time use could be virtually useless for some applications, unless the camera is incredibly low light sensitive without the use of the infrared illumination. I am happy to say that this camera's range of 250 feet in total darkness is solid, and serves our purposes perfectly. The 700 TVL color resolution combined with the optical zoom leaves very little room for missing any detail. What's even better is that the resolution jumps up to 750TVL in black and white! The PTZ movements are smooth and quick and camera works great with our Security Camera King Ultimate 16 Channel DVR. The best I can say is that this is a high quality camera that has top notch performance and I would recommend it to others.

  Review by Schrader, Dan (California USA) on Aug 08, 2013
This is a high quality camera with a good output. Mounts easily, set up is pretty standard for PTZ cameras, and the camera integrates with the buttons on the Security Camera King DVR automatically. The camera isn't light; it weighs about 15 pounds so make sure you mount it very securely. But don't worry, the 5 pound wall mount is very sturdy and well suited for the camera so there is no recognizable vibration in the video recordings due to camera movement or weather. I know many cameras specify an increase in resolution when they are operating in black and white mode, but I didn't think we'd ever see the day when one of these types of cameras would break the 700TVL mark (this gets 750TVL in black and white). As far as the PTZ functions are concerned the camera is like a "pizza with everything"; there are not many (or any) features and options that this camera doesn't have. Video recordings are very high quality, high resolution with good clarity and accurate color representation.

  Review by Fritz Behnke on May 22, 2013
This may be a little unique so I thought I would do a review and share it with you. My company already has a security camera system, a Security Camera King Ultimate security camera system in fact. Lucky for us, we do have a few vacant channels, so we didn't need to purchase another DVR to accommodate this PTZ camera. Our business unlike most these days, has been doing fairly well and we recently acquired the property adjoining ours. We have an average size parking lot for our employees and visitors and we have a couple of 3.6mm wide angle lens cameras fixed on the parking lot, but that is it. The new property is a strip that runs off the parking lot between two buildings and it is dark and night and un fenced. We've been wanting a PTZ camera for the parking lot, and now we need a street light for the new property. However, we purchased this particular PTZ camera instead. It is mounted on the edge of the parking lot on a pole, which is also on the edge of the newly acquired property. The powerful infrared LED illuminators easily range out the distance of the new property and allow us to monitor that area at night without the expense of adding any additional lighting. The PTZ camera not only produces a very clear, fine infrared video picture, but it's day time color video is that way as well. The 23X zoom lens gives us very good coverage of the parking area, one side of our original building, and the length of the entire newly acquired property, so our investment has been well worth it. Although we have our own Security Camera King security system, we are not security camera professionals (I take care of electrical systems and repairs) so we were a little fuzzy on exactly how to set up and operate the camera for our conditions. I called Security Camera King's support department and they were 100% helpful and professional. I'd have no problem recommending Security Camera King or their products to any one else.

  Review by Roberts, Dana (Pennsylvania USA) on Apr 22, 2013
I recently installed two of these cameras for a company near the Philadelphia area and I'm writing to tell you how impressed I am with the cameras. Seriously, these cameras cost almost $900 each but the way the perform; I was very surprised after getting to know them that they weren't more in the $1500 price category. If you are an installer or have had the opportunity like I have to see a lot of different makes and models of security cameras, especially the electronic components, I think you can appreciate why so many people that have say so many good tings about the Sony ExView HAD CCD II. The quality of the video capture is almost always outstanding, relative to the resolution and other features of that particular camera. But on this camera, that is only the beginning. This camera is really jam packed with features, all of which are practical and useful. The camera delivers a good quality video at one of the highest resolutions I've seen for a PTZ camera, in fact for any analog camera, at 700 TVL resolution in color and 750 TVL resolution in black and white. Identification isn't an issue with this camera not only because of the high resolution image, but it also has a 23X optical zoom lens. (It also has a 16X digital zoom on top of that which is good for the first few degrees of power before it really starts to distort the picture like most digital zoom enhancements.) The camera has an OSD for control of features, but there area also many features that can be set to work automatically and do a fine job of making adjustments on their sown such as gain control, shutter control, and white balance. The iris and focus functions of the lens are also automatic (you can make them manual) and are quick and responsive. Of course there are also all the other features you'd expect from a high quality PTZ camera like presets, auto tour programming, patterns, scans, etc. The real "claim to fame" of this camera exists in it infrared function though. Most PTZs with a strong zoom function can "out zoom" their practical infrared LED illuminator range rendering the camera relatively useless in dark environments after a short range. However this camera has a 250 foot (almost a football field) long range. That's some powerful on-board LEDs! Ironically, that can present itself as a problem because the stronger LEDs will be too strong for close objects and have a tendency to over illuminate or "washout" the capturing at close distances. This camera compensates for that by using two sets of LEDs, so that when objects are close it uses the less powerful set to illuminate but not over illuminate close objects. In addition the camera is pretty darn low light sensitive to start out with a rating of 0.01 Lux for color and 0.001 Lux for black and white. Bottom dollar, this is a nice PTZ camera and my customer was very satisfied with both of them.
